I Love Me

I’ve hated this woman. I have not loved her at full capacity. I’ve fed her lies & told her she wasn’t good enough, and I have allowed others to do the same. I’ve allowed her to be broken. I’ve allowed others to treat her disrespectfully. I’ve allowed her to run through brick walls & the battle for others who wouldn’t even stand for her. I couldn’t stop individuals from abandoning her, yet I’ve seen her get up and love others despite all that. I have stood paralyzed by fear while she fought battles in her mind, heart, and soul.

This woman has screwed up many times, and as a friend, because she doesn’t always say or do the “right things.” She has a smart mouth, and she has secrets. She has scars… because she has a history.

Some people love this woman, some like her, and some people don’t care for her at all.

She has done right and wrong in her life. She goes days without makeup or without shaving her legs. She doesn’t get dressed up very often. She is random and sometimes silly. She will not pretend to be someone she is not. She is who she is.

Every mistake, failure, trial, disappointment, success, joy, and achievement has made her the woman she is today.

You can choose to love her or not. But when she loves you, she will do it with her whole heart, and I will make no apologies for the way she is.

This Woman is a WARRIOR. She’s not perfect, but she has a lot of WORTH! She’s UNSTOPPABLE. She is Grace. 

Ladies, I dare you to put this on your status, with a picture of yourself, If you’re proud to be who you are. ❤❤❤
